Hundreds of students and residents
4of Ann Arbor who attended the city's
second ,automobile show yesterday
afternoon and evening were astounded
at the splendor of the decorations and
the beauty of the displays which have
transformed Yost field house, the
scene of the show.
Soon after 1 o'clock yesterday after-
noon, Mayor George E. Lewis gave the
signal for the large doors at the ath-
letic plant to be thrown open. Within
a short time, a large number of spec-
tators were passing up and down the
aisles formed by the arrangement of
the cars. Many others were seen gaz-
ing at the roof of the field house,
which is nearly completely hidden by
a mass of flags.
The red, white, and blue of the na-
tion's flag predominate the colors.
From the exact center of the roof is
suspended a huge dome formed of the
flags of all nations. Bunting and other
decorative materials adorn the bal-
cony and railings while the lower por-
tions. of the walls are covered by
draperies of soft Arabian colors.
The highly-polished cars are ar-
ranged symmetrically around the
walls of the building and in the cen-
ter. More than 115 cars are included
in the exhibit, in addition to a num-
ber of other motorized vehicles. Sev-
eral cut-a-way motors and chasses,
electrically operated for demonstra-
tion purposes, are being displayed.
One of the. feaures is a large speed-
The greatest feature of the show
last night was the two hour concert
by the University band. The show is
being sponsored by the Ann Arbor
Automobile Dealers' association for
the purpose of raising sufficient funds
for the support of the band during the
current year. The band was situated
on a portion of the basketball floor in
the center of the house. Athletic:
stunts were also furnished by the Uni-
versity gymnasium team.
It is expected that more than 15,000
people from this and adjoining towns
will attend the show during the four
days. It will be opened at 10 o'clock
this morning and will continue
through the afternoon and evening.
The same program will be followed
tomorrow and Saturday until 11
o'clock Saturday night, when the show
will come to an end. The University
hand will give concerts every night
and Saturday afternoon, and athletic
stunts will be offerd by the boxing,
wrestling, and fencing teams of the

ciation have been untiring in their ef-

German Entrance Into League
Would Be Great Test---Frayer

If Germany is admitted to the
League of Nations, that council will
be given the greatest opportunity to
prove itself-that it has yet had, in the
opinion of Prof. W. A. Frayer of the
European history department.
"If the League continues to succeed
with the presence of Germany, assurn-
ing for the sake of argument that that
country is allowed membership, it will
certainly be a decided step forward,"s
Professor Frayer replied when asked
his opinion on the subject yesterday.
The fact that Paul Hymans, the Bel-
gium minister, and Premier Herriot
of France both went on record recent-
ly as being in favor of Germany's ad-
mission to the League, provided no ex-,
ceptional grants are demanded by the

Berlin government, is "excellent," in
Professor Frayer's estimation.
"It remains to be seen whether this
would dispel some of the friction be-
tween France and Germany," he said.
"It most certainly should lessen the
antagonism. At any rate the member-
ship of the Reich government would
afford a great opportunity for better
relations ?etween the two nations.
"There is some danger of overesti-
mating the importance of Germany's
possible admission, 'however. It ap-
pears to me that the significance of
the question is in proportion to the
League's success. That is, if the
council could survive the test, and
continue to solve its many difficulties,
,then Germany's presence would be of
great import," he said.

Democratic Senator, Behind Barricade
of Documents, Prepares for
Week's Argument
Washington, Mar. 11.-(By A.P.)-
A filibuster against ratification of the
Isle of Pines treaty developed late to-
day in the Senate when Senator Cope-:
land, Democrat, New York, announced
that he was prepared to speak for at
least several days.
Accepting this challenge, Republic-
an leaders indicated they were ready
to force night sessions to bring to a
vote the convention with Cuba, which
has been pending for more than 20
years and by which the United States
would formally recognize Cuban sov-
ereignty over the Isle of Pines.
With other opponents of this con-
vention, Senator Copeland desires that
action be postponed until the new
Congress assembles. They take the
position that new members of the Sen-
ate should have more time to study
the question.
Senator Copeland served his notice
after more than five hours of debate.
Previously, he had asked for unan-

Dawes' Absence
Out Of Harmony
With His Policy
Records show that Wednesday's
vote in the Senate on the ratification
of Charles B. Warren of Michigan for
the attorney generalship of the United
States presented the first opportunity
for any Vice-President of this country
to cast the deciding vote in a senate
ratification of a man recommended by
the President for a cabinet position,
Prof. Everett S. Brown of the political
science department stated yesterday.
Vice-President Charles B. Dawes,
by his absence, failed to take advan-
tage of the opportunity, and as a re-
sult the Senate rejected Mr. Warren
for the cabinet position by one vote.
In the opinion of Professor Brown,
the incident in which the Vice-Presi-
dent failed to cast his deciding vote
is of significance because in hid fail-
ure to vote, Vice-President Dawes has
cast reflection on himself, especially
considering his actions when he took
I office one week ago yesterday.
"Then," continued Professor Brown,
"when the opportunity came to him to
cast the deciding vote for a cabinet,
nominee and insure a positive action
in the Senate, he was not present to
cast his vote. Although the Vice-
President was strong in his attempts
to have the Senate support the admin-
istration, it would now appear thati

ble for the failure of the Senate to{

lecturer, will present his solution to

address at 4:15 o'clock today in the

ed as his subject by the Round Table
club, under whose auspices the speak-

than 500 students to individual coursesI
which was at that time an unprece-

to his dismissal, both members of the

and teacher.

the situation arising in 1915. Ilarri-
son S. Morris, son-in-law of the found-

(d that Nearing was dismissed not
because of his so-called radical theor-
ies,, which he expounded within the
university, ,but rather because "lhe
